Once again the Truffle minds are being called upon to reach out to our network of connected and affluent and chic Truffle readers to refer a list of potential cast mates for a new reality show about …. Yes, Housewives. … Continue reading
As a site written by born and raised Beverly Hills natives, we are often asked how real is Bravo’s version? A little nip and tuck, lavish birthdays for dogs and celebrity marriages do happen but that could be in any town … Continue reading
Real Housemaids of Beverly Hills?? We have long discussed on the Truffle that the maids of Beverly Hills deserve their own reality series and great minds do think alike … Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry has set up a new … Continue reading
Really Bravo? If you are going to cast people from Westlake (Kim) & Calabasas (Brandi) in the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, perhaps you should consider a name change? Bravo is wisely dubbing cast newcomers as “friends of the housewives.” But as … Continue reading
The Beverly, the second venture from LA nightlife’s Guy Starkman, Darren Dzienciol, Brent Bolthouse and Jen Rosero, is right on par with the newer trend of less club and more lounge …
*Trousdale was the first (The Beverly is housed in the same location as Guy Starkman’s first bar called Guy’s where Darren was also involved).
Think more relaxed NYC bar and less big LA bottle-popping club.
Last Wednesday, Victoria’s Secret rented out The Beverly for their second party in L.A. in two months – this time for their launch of “What is Sexy”. This comes two weeks before The Beverly’s official opening date, May 19th. Marcel Vigneron from Top Chef exercised his molecular gastronomy skillz making frozen drinks at the bar while Cake Pops were passed around to guests dancing to the beat of famed NYC DJ, Jus Ske’s drum, I mean turn tables.

If you read The Daily Truffle you know we often get casting calls to post — most notably from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills producers way back when. We have gotten lots of various casting calls since then for the Food Network, Oprah Winfrey’s network and more for Los Angeles based reality shows. I was most excited to see this email late last night for yet another Housewives reality show – this one to be filmed in Malibu. The producers say they are still out to networks but the format will be much like Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise. If they get a good group of ladies, who knows, maybe Andy Cohen will come a calling.

We have raised our readership to over 200,000 followers a month and have filled that void in mainstream media where a voice was needed for us illusive born and bred L.A. natives who love our town!

It’s Official. Time to end the rumors and call T.O.D.
The Daily Truffle has just learned Bravo has officially re-cast a NEW HOUSEWIFE(!) to replace the role of Camille Grammer who has officially left the show!
This is no longer speculation. This is the truth from a good source. And if you read The Daily Truffle you know we are the ones who announced the show first and who announced the cast first and who went to the premiere party etc, etc, etc.
But wait …. Hark! Did we say “re-cast”?! Yes .. we did!
Meaning a new housewife will join the cast next season! We can’t tell you who, but if you keep your eyes peeled around Beverly Hills for the next couple months … you are sure to see the new gal pal of Adrienne, Kyle Kim, Taylor, Lisa and Jiggy!
I am looking forward to seeing Camille on CNN this weekend at the Oscars and wish her and her children and the staff the best in all their next endeavors.

If you are on a plane to Utah this weekend, don’t be surprised if the entire cabin is much cooler and better looking than your average Southwest fuselage. Flights to the annual Sundance Film Festival will be carrying brand reps, publicists, agents, starlets (the bigger names will fly private), studio execs, marketing folk, the usual suspects who follow the gravy train, and Park City and Deer Valley regulars.
If you are flying from the East Coast look out for the Strategic Group, BMF Media Group and Talent Resources at JFK and Laguardia, and if you are flying from the West Coast expect to see Harrison & Shriftman, Feinstein-McGuiness, Spin Shoppe, RFPR, LFB Media Group, EFG:: Entertainment Fusion Groupand Shadow PR at Burbank and LAX – and of course Paul+Williams will be coming from both directions. They will all be setting up shop on and around Main Street with the coolest of cool brands from Fred Segal to Playstation to CARRERA Sunglasses to Levi’s for a week long (9 days actually) of gift lounges, media lunches, premiere parties and dinners to ring in the celebrities at the Sundance Film Festival.

BH Housewives Success Spurs New Reality Show for Documentary Style Mini-Series about “Real” (I guess even more real this time) Women in Beverly Hills… Yes, the natives were skeptical at first, but now that the BH Housewives is a smash … reality show producers are going for round 2. This time, the show is shorter and not scripted (yes, the BH housewives is partially scripted). From our friends at Casting … Continue reading
From time to time we get emails from casting directors developing new shows (like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills casting call last year) or casting for re-occurring shows. We recently got on from Alicia Arnold over at CBS who is currently casting for the sixth season for Design Star, HGTV’s top-rated reality competition series. An open casting call will be held this Sunday, December 5th, 2010 in Los Angeles! Continue reading
